Check out an exclusive interview with Jill Schulz and Melissa Menta about the new touring Snoopy & Belle in Fashion exhibit!



Are you a fan of Snoopy? Well being a child of the 80's I have to say that Snoopy was a huge part of my childhood from the cartoons to my beloved Snoopy blanket to my favorite Snoopy dolls. Do you remember those classic Snoopy dolls? The ones that had clothing that you could change and buy all sorts of outfits for? My doll came with a letter-mans jacket and I loved making all kinds of clothing for him from household fabric scraps. What fun times that was. 
If you had a doll like that or are just a huge fan of Snoopy you are going to love the new traveling U.S City tour, Snoopy and Belle in Fashion. 

The 2017 U.S. tour will see the premiere of all new one-of-a-kind creations in every city, displayed via on-trend vinyl Snoopy and Belle dolls, by designers who ingeniously capture the unique style of their region.

Oscar-winning Costume Designer Colleen Atwood (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), Actress-Dancer Jenna Dewan Tatum x Danskin (Step Up) and Designer and Stylist Rachel Zoe (Editor-in-chief of digital style destination The Zoe Report) will debut their exclusive looks for the dolls.

They will be joining a group that features the world’s foremost designers—including Anna Sui, Betsey Johnson, Bibhu Mohapatra, Calvin Klein Collection, Children of our Town, Christian Siriano, Costello Tagliapietra, Cristiano Burani, DSquared2, Diane Von Furstenberg, DKNY by Donna Karan, Dries Van Noten, Emanuel Ungaro, Edwin Oudshoorn, Isaac Mizrahi, Isabel Marant, J.

Visit the Grand Lux Cafe an amazing meal with delicious house made food you will love!

Do you ever just want to go out with the family and have a meal that tastes homemade and is quality, but you do not have to cook it? Well in my family every Saturday is family day, a day that we unplug and we go out and just spend time doing things as a family, from going to a show, or a museum to just a fun day at the mall, as long as we are together that is fine with me. We like to eat out as well each Saturday and this past family day we had an amazing lunch at Grand Lux Cafe. For those who are not familiar with this restaurant chain, here is a little more information about the Grand Lux Cafe:

Created by the insatiable founders of The Cheesecake Factory®, The Grand Lux Cafe was inspired by extensive European travel exploring Italian trattorias, French bistros and the grand cafes and pastry shops of Vienna. Blending the grandeur and luxury of European cafes with the sensibilities and spirit of an all-American restaurant. With 11 locations across the country, their upscale-casual eatery offers guests a unique dining experience from cuisine to décor. Every item is prepared fresh to order in our open-style kitchen, using only the finest ingredients such as Certified Angus, Prime, Kobe Beef, Jumbo U15 Shrimp, and organic herbs.

Celebrate with Mardi Gras King Cake Coffee from Community Coffee Company #Giveaway


For me there is nothing like waking up to a hot cup of coffee. It really wakes me up and gets me ready to go out and enjoy my day.  Are you a coffee fan like me? If you are looking for a smooth or bold  morning cup to get you started, or a nice flavored afternoon cup to keep you going you are going to love the coffee from the Community Coffee Company, here is a little more information about this great family run company from the website:

Community Coffee Company has sold premium quality coffee since Henry Norman “Cap” Saurage began serving coffee out of his country store in 1919. Cap named his coffee “Community” in honor of his community of friends. Today, the company has grown to become the largest family-owned and operated retail coffee brand in America. Community® coffee can be found in grocery and convenience stores, offices, hotels, and many of the best restaurants throughout the Southeast, and is available worldwide through CommunityCoffee.com. 

One thing I love about coffee is the vast amount of flavors that taste great when blended with coffee. I love my French vanilla and classic caramel flavors but there is just something special about unique flavors when I see a new flavor I simply have to try it out. I recently heard that the Community Coffee Company has Mardi Gras King Cake Coffee. Being a huge fan of all that is New Orleans I have to tell you I was excited. New Orleans is a spectacular place to visit for great culture and amazing food. 
One of the delicious foods my husband and I discovered during our last visit to New Orleans was King Cake, and we loved it!  What is not to love about King Cake? For those who many not know about the decadent and divine King Cake, this is a New Orleans tradition to help celebrate, this cake is a centerpiece at many Mardi Gras parties.
The cake is much like a huge danish delicious topped with sugar toppings in the traditional Mardi Gras colors of purple, green and gold. Inside you will find a tiny plastic baby, you can see if you are the lucky one to get the baby in your slice, and if you do the cake is on you next year!

Now just think of this cake in coffee form and you have Mardi Gras King Cake Coffee (well minus the little plastic baby of course)! The delicious combo of cinnamon & vanilla  made with only the top 10% of the world’s coffee beans. This coffee is a perfect way to enjoy Mardi Gras from the comfort of your own home. 
The king of all flavored coffees. Enjoy this perfectly balanced blend of cinnamon and vanilla flavored coffee. Made from only the top 10% of the world's coffee beans. For use in all KEURIG® K-CUP® brewers. Each carton comes with 12 K-Cups. 
I loved the smooth cinnamon and vanilla notes of the Mardi Gras King Cake Coffee it was delicious and really reminded me of the cake. If you enjoy flavored coffee like I do, I would highly suggest picking up a bag or box of Mardi Gras King Cake Coffee. Community Coffee Company offers coffee in ground coffee and K-Cups so whatever you prefer they have a style for you. 

Be sure to check out the amazing amount of mouthwatering coffee blends as well, from the classics like Tasted Hazelnut, to the yummy Southern Bread Pudding.
